Behind-the-scenes with Team Sunweb's new race leader

In a thrilling time trial stage yesterday, Team Sunweb's Tom Dumoulin destroyed the rest of the field on his way to a stage victory, and in the process inherited the pink leader's jersey.

The Dutchman put 49 seconds into second place Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) to win the stage, and as a result now sits 2'23" ahead of Nario Quintana (Movistar) and 2'38" ahead of third place Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) in the overall classification. 

Here, Team Sunweb offer a behind-the-scenes look at the stage itself (video above), as well as a look into the preparation that went into the time trial stage (video below).

Dumoulin will start Stage 11 in pink, and should still comfortably hold the lead by the end of the day.

The stage contains plenty of climbing, so there will be ample chance for Quintana to attack and try to claw back some of the time deficit but Dumoulin should have the measure of the Colombian for the time being.
